Terrific Richard Paul Fink anchors strong Flying Dutchman production
A magnificent performance by Richard Paul Fink in the title role of Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman" on put a full wind to the sails in the Portland Opera production on Saturday evening at Keller Auditorium. Because I am writing a review of this production for Opera magazine, I can't put it in this blog, but suffice it to say that the strong cast, the top-level playing by the orchestra, and the inventive staging by Christopher Alden combined to create a thoroughly engaging "Dutchman." There are three remaining shows left (Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday). Get a ticket if you can.
